Actress and singer Jennifer Lopez revealed something during a Hollywood Reporter round table discussion about Hollywood, their careers and the #MeToo movement with fellow actresses Scarlett Johansson, Awkwafina, Laura Dern and Renée Zellweger.

The 50-year-old star, who recently starred in a powerful female flick "Hustler," talked about how a director asked her to take her top off at a fitting because she had to do nudity in the movie.

However, Lopez said the question wasn't being asked on set, rather in a room with a costume designer, who was also a woman.

"And I said no, I stood up for myself. But it was so funny because I remember being so panicked in the moment," Lopez said in the round table interview fro the Hollywood Reporter.

She said the man later apologized.

The discussion revolved around how to empower the industry, especially when it comes to female actresses, about what is and isn't OK or appropriate in the industry.
